In honor of St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, I am doing all things green this week.  These enchiladas aren’t Irish, but they do have green chiles in the sauce.  I found this recipe on Pinterest, my favorite place for inspiration.

The original recipe is from Joyful Momma’s Kitchen: it was all the rage on Pinterest a few weeks ago.  I finally got around to making it and it was incredible!  The sour cream sauce on these enchiladas was amazing!  We couldn’t get enough of it!  I used full fat sour cream, I wasn’t sure how low fat or fat free would work.  Give this a try if you are looking for a good enchilada recipe without cream of chicken soup.

  1. I made these a couple of weeks ago and they were soooo good! I was worried my husband wouldn't like them since he is strictly a taco guy – but he loved them! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  2. I discovered your blog thru ZipList. I came across this recipe and since then, my family has made it three times. We are in LOVE!

  3. I made these last night for dinner. The whole family loved them! Thanks for posting such wonderful recipes, you really help people like me stay motivated to cook at home more! 🙂

  4. I made these last night, and my husband thought they were great. I used light sour cream, and it worked fine. Plain yogurt might also be a good substitute if you don't have sour cream on hand. Definitely adding this to our dinner rotation!

  5. I made them over the weekend too and thought they were amazing!! I only had light sour cream, light butter and canned chicken and still thought they came out fantastic. Next time I will definitely use some rotisserie chicken, but I didn't miss the extra fat from from the sour cream or butter.

    1. I assume you’re kidding but in case you aren’t, it’s white because of the white sauce as opposed to the traditional red sauce on enchiladas.

  6. I made these from pinterest too. I think maybe I was the only one on the planet who thought they were on the bland side. I was totally bummed because I really really wanted to like them.

    1. Look for the white chicken enchiladas recipe from pioneer woman. I've made it about 4 times now and its a crowd favorite. My husband and kids ask me to make them alllll the time. Get a jalapeño queso cheese to add to it…there's more steps in that recipe but…..well worth it. I don't cook whole chicken and make my own broth. I use ckicken tenderloin and swanson broth…..
